Racing rims are an automotive product that attract a great deal of attention both in and out of actual racing circles. With the massive amount of car enthusiasts valuing racing rims more for their aesthetic capabilities than their performance factor, a new market has been born, made up of rims that are focused more on aesthetics than actual performance. However, there is still a massive market for performance enhancing racing rims, which attracts masses of motorsport and performance car enthusiasts every year. From casual hobbyists to professional racers, the value of a high quality set of racing rims is well documented, and their massive benefits put them in the essential category for any serious car enthusiast.

With such a wide variety of rims available, it can be difficult to know what type are the ideal fit and profile for your specific vehicle. While it’s possible to customize your car with rims and new wheel arches, the ideal fit for optimum performance is almost always dictated by your cars structure and performance abilities. There’s nothing worse for performance and handling than ill-fitted rims on the wrong type of car, so picking the right size and design should be the first priority for any car enthusiast.

While many show cars go for the biggest set of racing rims possible, this isn’t always ideal for performance and in-car comfort. If you’re a motor racer, or someone looking to extract the ultimate in performance from your vehicle, you’re much better off going with a set of racing rims that balance aesthetics with performance. This can be achieved by choosing the right size of rims for your car. Be sure to pick something that fits relatively comfortably into the wheel arches of your car, and doesn’t require any excess bodywork changes or large shifts in the suspension pressure. Generally speaking, a set of 17 inch wheels will fit on a moderate car, with rims of 18 inches and over being ideal for large cars or cars that have relatively low ground clearance.
